About Us

The Chichester Festival for Music, Dance and Speech was founded in 1955 to encourage and promote the performing arts for all age groups, and especially for the young.  The Festival is a registered charity, number 1040782 and is affiliated to the British and International Federation of Festivals of which Her Majesty the Queen is patron.

Our events take place in a range of venues in the Chichester area and our adjudicators are chosen for their expertise, their ability to empathise and establish a rapport with performers and their sense of fun.
